Based off of Hetland's Studio Thinking Habits of Mind, this lesson introduces the concept of Stretch & Explore, asking the students to collaborate and create a group painting, playfully, without traditional materials.
A lesson plan, rubric, students-at-work work timeline, and power point slides with discussion questions and activities are included.
This lesson is the third in a series dedicated to teaching the Studio Thinking Habits of Mind. It is intended to be used with 7th, 8th, or introductory level high school art students. It would be best at the beginning of the course.
The lesson is aligned to National Core Art Standards.
